The OSI Group is one of the largest meat processing and manufacturing companies on the planet. They are actively operating in more than 17 countries, and as of 2018, the company has more than 50 facilities operating in different cities across the world. One of their newest facilities can be found in Toledo, Spain. Through their subsidiary, OSI Food Solutions, the Toledo meat processing facility stated that they could increase meat production in a few months. The people of Spain and Portugal have an increasing demand for chicken meat, and the OSI Food Solutions stated that they could produce a lot of chicken meat for the local population.
The OSI Food Solutions stated that they had invested more than €17 million for the creation of the new production facility. The high-capacity production line will be able to create 24,000 tons of manufactured meat, doubling the capacity of the previous production line. The upgraded production line in Toledo, Spain is seen to boost the sale of meat in the region, particularly chicken meat. According to the head of the facility, they will be able to provide chicken and other meat types to the growing population of Spain and Portugal, and they could manufacture it in a short amount of time that would enable its freshness when taken to the market or the grocery.
The high-capacity facility in Toledo, Spain is also expected to produce 45,000 tons of livestock meat, and because of the huge demand for the workforce, the OSI Food Solutions have opened jobs for 20 people who would be operating the high-capacity facility. This places the total labor force at the Toledo facility to around 140. The creation of a high-capacity production line in Toledo, Spain is the answer of the OSI Group to the growing demand of the Spanish and the Portuguese population for chicken meat. According to statistics, the demand surged from 6% to 8%, and experts believe that this figure is more likely to go up.
David McDonald, the current chief executive officer of the OSI Group, stated that the creation of a high-capacity production line in Spain would improve their operations in the European continent. He also said that there are plans to introduce the same facilities to other areas around the world which have a growing demand for chicken meat. He claimed that by building facilities like the one in Toledo, Spain, the OSI Group manages to save a lot of money and increase their production.
